Samantha Power in Conversation with New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof: The Education of an Idealist

Samantha Power and Nicholas Kristof
The Education of an Idealist by Samantha Power

“What can one person do?” Samantha Power, former US ambassador to the United Nations and cabinet member of the Obama White House, has an urgent reply to this question.

Join the Pulitzer Prize-winning author in a conversation with The New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof as they lay out a clear-eyed vision for a more humane American future. Power tells the story of how coming to America as a child and covering global conflict as a young journalist shaped her worldview and led her to the White House. In this distinctly American story—as told in her new book, The Education of an Idealist—she establishes groundwork in deeply personal terms for how America can continue to lead the world, and how individual citizens can fight for a more dignified society.
